Stuck on a military outpost in the middle of nowhere, Zoey had been praying for something to relieve her boredom.
She never dreamed that relief would come in the form of a seven-foot tall, sexy alien. One who claimed she belonged to him.
Except, there was something pulling her to him… a deep, hot attraction she couldn’t deny.

"Alien Warrior" is the story of Zoey and Dex.

In this introduction to Zerconian Warriors series, we meet Zoey, an Earth commander, who is kidnapped by Dex, the Zerconian King when he realizes they are fated mates. How they adjust to each other and their eccentricities is the story.

It started out sooo well! Quirky and witty Zoey met the brooding and confused warrior Dex, and sparks flew! However, I felt that Zoey became too subjugated post mating- I mean there's a scene where the hero calls her, a

I read the first few sentences and thought oh no not another erotic story relying on sex rather then plot to fill the pages. Well how wrong was I ? Yes its a little short but its not just a subservient heroine falling for the big alien. No Zoey is one feisty , independent, smart aleck who enjoys irritating those who deserve it . She might be stuck on an out of the way outpost but no way is she letting any pervy sleazeball get the better of her. Zoey would like nothing more than to put her Alien ...more

For Alien smut, this is probably actually only 2 "Not tonight. I have a headache" stars. Reason you probably read alien smut:

1. Alien looking aliens tall humans from another planet with color changing eyes
2. Lots of Sexy Smutty Times with something extra Only 2 scenes, and the first is at 60%. No special qualities.
3. Danger and intrigue Fire breathing lizards and shuttle crashes.

Okay, that last one was pretty cool. Despite being more of a romance there are a few unique aspects that any alien smu
Meh. I didn't hate it, but I didn't enjoy it either.

Alien Prince finds his soul mate on a human outpost in space, kidnaps her.
Alien society is a bunch of misogynistic types who keep women safe & don't allow them to do much. Spanking them for disobeying, expecting gratitude before taking them to bed, etc...

I did not really warm up to any of the characters in this book. The alien society sounded awful. The hero and heroine were constantly fighting. The hero had no redeemable qualities in my opinio

SFR between alpha alien H and human h. H was hot and sexy and possessive of his 'mate' h. I wanted to smack the h almost the entire length of the book. Will NOT be reading the sequel , h irritated me so much.
3 stars, just for the worldbuilding and H.

Zoey lived on the planet Solim on a Military outpost. When she received a communication from a Zerconian warship asking to land because they were in need of repairs to their ship, they let them land. She went out to greet them and that's when The Crown Prince Dex first spotted her and knew instantly that she was his mate. Dex was really mad that her commander had allowed her to come out and greet him and his people alone. His people kept their women safe at all times and never would have let her ...more

Annoyingly this story could have been significantly improved by removing the first 10 pages which are overly smutty in a creepy way and the character of Pressad who is pointless to the plot. Having nearly abandoned the book within 1 minute, I would have missed out on quite a good book actually. I especially like the idea that the main challenges that a human outpost in space will face are *boredom* and *dragons*.

There were some really good details that subverted some paranormal romance tropes -

Wow! Color me impressed! What an absolute delight! Alien Warrior is the first release in the Zerconian Warrior Series by Sadie Carter and it totally rocks. From what I understand, this is Carter 's first foray into the world of science fiction and I for one, hope it's not her last! The story is imaginative, exciting, original, humorous, romantic and arousing. It's exceptionally well developed and well written. The characters are fascinating, captivating, engaging and sexy as si
To be short and blunt.
I didn’t like the female character.

It was just an average story wrapped in bubble wrap and some Disney sprinkles. Not authentic, with stereotypical and boring characters. Which don’t fit in the current century.

There was some humour in it. Yet, it was overused. After a while, the main female characters talk, was just simply annoying. No one talks constantly like that.
The whole book felt immature. The plot, the characters, the villains, the interactions with each other. And

This series is fun and easy to read. Explaining English idioms and euphemisms to aliens .... I wouldn’t want to do it.

K this wasn't a bad plot-- it was just written so poorly!!!

Anything climatic (pun intended) is completely skipped over. It's pathetic.

I do really like that Zoey is fighting back at the sexism though, so I may read to know what happens to her.

But overall; this book was god-awful. It jumps ahead so many times, nothing makes sense.

What a funny ride!

Zoey was hilarious, Dex was a good mix of arrogant asshole and kind protective alien hunk 😂

The story itself was entertaining. Zoey meets Dex (Alien Crown Prince) at a space station, and he finds out she is his mate! He then kidnaps her, and she is having none of it!

It was fun, smutty and all in all, a great read.

Rated 3.5

This was a fun book to read. Dex and Zoey were quite the pair. They will drive each other insane with their difference but that's what makes this story more enjoyable. I will definitely continue the series to see what will happen next.

Eh. Wasn't really happy with this one. Honestly Dex just annoyed me. His arrogance was through the roof and not in a good way. Also the way he called Zoey "my own" was kind of annoying. The plot is pretty cliché but I was okay with that. Will continue the series at some point, just not right now. ...more

This book gets full marks cause it made me laugh so hard. What a character the heroine is, totally sassy. Poor Princey Dex doesn’t know what hit him. Worth the read, so entertaining

Hated the hero. "For your own good" "All to keep you safe" Does not excuse being an asshole.

The heroine wasn't much better either.

Where does all the common sense go, really?
I actually finished a book. And it was rather good. :) And the second one is about the same main characters.

He’s an arrogant alien prince and a warrior used to being obeyed. She’s a feisty and stubborn female who takes orders from no one.

Zoey and her zingers

Zoey works with a complete knuckle dragger. Even though she continues to turn him down, he's determined to win her. So, when he nominates her to be the ambassador to an alien race of patriarchal barbarians, outside the protection dome that keeps the fire lizards out, she comes to realize what she thought was just a hard head may actually be an empty one. So, watching the sky while dealing with a jerk who keeps pestering her about a keeper is just fun frosting on the crappy cu
Not horrible but not great. Only 2 stars.

World-building is interesting but nothing really outstanding. Biggest fault? I wasn't crazy about the characters.

Dex (H) is domineering and stubborn and I just wanted to smack him so so so so so many times. Complete inability to understand that this race he hasn't encountered before might not have an understanding of his mating drives and customs, so the female he recognizes as his mate might not actually understand and feel the same. Took him a long whi

This was a mixed bag. I enjoyed the humor and Zoey's snarky attitude when faced with aliens who thought she should get down on her knees and be thankful she was picked. She is going to show this arrogant princeling a thing or two. Zoey wants to be able to use her training in alien societies but has little chance to do so until the Zerconian Warriors show up. She does a good job when she tries to communicate to the prince that he should look into the attack on his ship by the normally friendly ot ...more

I think this story was too short to do the protagonists justice, or the plot. I am convinced the story would have gained by "fleshing" out a bit more of the events, e.g. when or how the pod was shot down, or when they stayed on the planet for two weeks, after the male protagonist was healed (and how long did that take, how exactly was it done etc.). On the other hand, why the scene with the doctor from the outstation in the beginning, what purpose did that serve?

So... this was pretty awful. :( The only thing that saved it from a 1-star rating was that I found it oddly readable, in a “I’m morbidly curious to see what dumb, eyeroll-inducing, cringey, immature and juvenile shit is going to happen next” kind of way.

It’s a freebie, so if you’re curious to watch a couple of adults with the mental/emotional maturity of 12-year-olds fumble their way through an interspecies mating bond and engage in some (thankfully) brief, boring sex... give it a try.

This book was pretty boring for me. The plot was cookie cutter. Girl kidnapped by boy because if instant lust / mate. Girl is pissed , boy is domineering. They don’t seem to like each other and them mysteriously they are in love.

The heroine drove my crazy. She’s supposedly an expert in aliens but seems to suck at interaction with another culture. I understand that she didn’t have much knowledge on their culture but still. The hero was sort of a non entity. He just kept telling her

I enjoyed this one as far as the characters and world went but some of the ideas with the interactions between the males and female character were a bit too extreme.. there wasn't as much compromise between the couple even though he said he understood what she was feeling... then there was the spanking scene that held no benifit for the relationship and there was no erotic play with it either... idk it was just off to me... I also think that these characters possibly continue in later books simp ...more

This book came as a recommendation from Kindle Amazon. I’m not really into serials so I kept passing it over and over; finally, with nothing to read I decided to give it a shot and bought the first three books (they are one story). And OMG, I love this book, the heroine is funny, strong, and even though she has some “kill me stupid” moments, she’s is so funny that you get over it quick. The hero starts as an overbearing jerk in the first book but, he really changes over the following books and y ...more
